Myers pens Austin Powers musical

Mike Myers is apparently writing the script for an Austin Powers musical.

The comedy actor, who has played the 60s British detective in all three of the spoof spy films, is working on a prequel to the first movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

At this stage it is thought that he will not actually star in the musical, but is simply developing it with The Book Of Mormon co-director Casey Nicholaw.

The musical will tell the tale of how the buck-toothed spy got his mojo, and will be set to the music of Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello.

Mike is also apparently developing a fourth instalment to the comedy film franchise, but the script has not been written yet.
